Re: pontiac 2002 stereo
your vehicles stereo is equipped with an antitheft system that render it inoperable once removed. If you are replacing with another ac delco make sure you have the code for that stereo. If you are replacing it with after market then find the section in your owners manual that tells you how to set the code, set it and write it down (maybe on the stereo) so you can sell it as those factory ac delco stereos are quite pricey

it is always cheaper to buy a working used one from a junkyard than to fix the old one. look around on eBay, craigslist, and junkyards. recyclers pull the radios and owners manuals out of cars and pile them in the office. so call around to local junkyards looking for a recent pontiac with CD player. you will most likely have to take a sawzall to your old one to get your discs out, but CDs are old tech now anyway. you should be able to get one for under 50 bucks, if you are not handy stereo install shops take them out and put them in very quickly and cheaply and are yet another source for used OEM stereos.
I just bought the haynes book and here is what it says,, when the owner is restored to the stereo the stereo wont turn on and LOC will appear.. here is what it says.. ... turn on ignition switch but leave stereo off
Press MN button.. 000 should display ... it says that in 2002 two an dlatermodels
that it will learn a portion of the VIN number fo your vehicle.. so you will just have to try those numbers until it works.. syas that you press the HR button until the first one or two Numbers match your code.. Press AM/FM button SEC should appear indicating the stereo is unlocked.d. if LOC appears the numbers arent correct.. try again..
Did you use a special wire harness? GM connected some computer system wiring with the stereo system, so if you replace this, there will be no chime when you open your door with the headlights on or keys in the ignition...and some other warning stuff. This special harness can be bought, but it is expensive (around 80-150$). Go to electronics store and ask for one. Anyways, hope this helps.
